journalists ‘imagine’ things Fareed Zakaria who hosts CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS in a piece asserts that the North Korean leader is one of those personalities whom he would want to interview After North launched a missile on Japan on Friday the journalist wrote a piece where he imagines an interview with the North Korean leader and jots down questions he would like to ask the "smart" leader In two separate opinion pieces (see here and here) on North Korea’s leader published in The Washington Post Zakaria tries to decipher (at times through Kim’s own words) how the regime has survived for so long File image of Kim Jong-un AFP While the world calls him a madman (and US president Donald Trump calls him a madman with nuclear weapons) Zakaria says he might be "strategic smart and utterly rational" As the countries condemn and put sanctions on North Korea over its nuclear missile tests Kim says in the imagined interview with Zakariathat his nation faces a fundamental challenge of survival because the regime is more threatened than ever With the disintegration of the Soviet Union and China gradually moving towards the West countries Kim is having an even more difficult time than his father and grandfather Kim’s father and grandfather ruled with the help of the Soviet Union and the mighty China As Zakaria says in another opinion piece published by The Washington Post China "went from being a fiery ideological soul mate to a pragmatic trading state that has eagerly integrated into world markets" China is starting to view North Korea as a nuisance Beijing on Friday condemned Pyongyang’s launch of a ballistic missile over Japan and appealed for restraints "The Chinese side opposes the DPRK’s violation of the resolution of the (UN) Security Council and its use of ballistic missile technology for launch activities" foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said as Guardian reported The US has also called on China and Russia to take direct action to reign in North Korea China also backed United Nations sanctions against Pyongyang as punishment for the regime’s nuclear weapons program New York Post reported "China is ruthlessly pragmatic It supports its own selfish interests and it longer considers North Korea an ally" Kim told Zakaria Expanding on Beijing’s concerns he said that China does not want millions of refugees or a unified Korea on its border Chinese president Xi Jinping has close relations with South Korea but not with me he added North Korea therefore faces an existential crisis It has survived with its ideology and system intact until now because they have built a protection in the form of nuclear weapons Kim told Zakaria According to a Foreign Policyarticle the Kim regime has had to survive massive famine that afflicted the public the loss of every international ally And the world’s most powerful country has made clear that North Korea is destined for the ash heap of history Trump said the latest UN sanctions on Pyongyang are only a very small step "We think it’s just another very small step not a big deal…But those sanctions are nothing compared to what ultimately will have to happen" he was quoted as saying by Huffington Post The Sun also reported that military advisors claim theUS is making plans to occupy North Korea quietly Kim said that they heard that senior officials in China and the United States were discussing whether to encourage a coup in North Korea and the only person who could have done it was his uncle who has now been liquidated he said In the face of such hostility Zakaria claims that the best insurance is having a nuclear capacity "Perhaps the right way to look at North Korea is as a smart rational calculating government that is functioning shrewdly given its priority of regime survival" Zakaria adds Expressing concern over what happened to Moammar Gaddafi in Libya after he agreed to give up his nuclear weapons program Kim told Zakaria that they will readily come to the negotiating table but will never give up their arsenal "We are a nuclear power This is not negotiable" he added While the Americans fear North Korea has the capacity and intention to launch missiles Kim said that the whole point is to ensure that he and his regime survives Kim demands recognition by Washington and guarantees of non-aggression from China Japan and the US Kim even sent a

attorney general over the probe into Russia’s alleged election meddling that has dogged him from day one Since taking office on 20 January Trump has been on a roller coaster ride and the gut-wrenching twists and turns looked set to continue after Jeff Sessions vowed to stay on at the Justice Department despite a stinging public rebuke from the commander-in-chief Publicly abandoning an influential early supporter the 71-year-old Trump suggested Sessions had betrayed him in stepping back from investigations into alleged Kremlin-Trump collusion— and said he wished he had never hired him "How do you take a job and then recuse yourself If he would have recused himself before the job I would have said ‘Thanks Jeff but I’m not going to take you’" Trump told The New York Times "I think is very unfair to the president" Trump said "It’s extremely unfair and that’s a mild word to the president" On Thursday Sessions said he had no plans to resign in the wake of the blistering criticism File image of President Donald Trump AP "I have the honour of serving as attorney general It is something that goes beyond any thought I would have ever had for myself" the Republican former senator said "I plan to continue to do so as long as that is appropriate" he added When asked how he could continue to work without the confidence of Trump Sessions replied: "We are serving right now The work we are doing today is the kind of work we intend to continue" ‘Brutal process’ Trump’s expansive remarks to The New York Times painted a picture of a president preoccupied with allegations against him — chief among them that his team may have colluded with Moscow to help tilt the election in his favour In the interview he warned special counsel and former FBI director Robert Mueller that some Trump family finances should be off-limits to his wide-ranging investigation Asked if Mueller looking at finances unrelated to Russia would be a red line Trump responded "I would say yes" "I have no income from Russia I don’t do business with Russia" he added Trump’s first six months in the White House have been as chaotic and contentious as any for a new president in living memory Making good on a promise to shake up Washington the Republican billionaire-turned-world leader has shattered norms at every turn abandoning the usual presidential decorum and caution But his bold and unambiguous campaign promises remain unrealised as he has struggled to turn the word into legislative deed most notably in enacting health care reform "It is tough It’s a very narrow path winding this way You think you have it and then you lose four on the other side because you gave It is a brutal process" he said "Smart people tough people — couldn’t get it done" The White House on Thursday lauded Trump’s success in nominating a Supreme Court justice — conservative Neil Gorsuch — and overseeing a growing economy "President Trump’s impact on the economy has been immediate spurring job creation across the country" the White House claimed "Just six months in office president Trump has taken historic action to eliminate wasteful and costly regulations that have stood in the way of hardworking Americans" Trump also travelled across Washington to the Pentagon on Thursday to highlight another bright spot in his administration — military success in rolling back the Islamic State group "We’re doing very well against ISIS ISIS is falling fast Very fast" he said Memphis: The Golden State Warriors not only lost to the Memphis Grizzlies they lost their cool in the closing minute Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant both were ejected with 43 seconds left on Saturday night a fitting end to a frustrating night for Warriors in a 111-101 loss to Memphis "My pockets will be a lot lighter for sure"

got to Memphis in the fourth quarter But Curry thought he was fouled on the play and threw his mouthpiece along the baseline leading to immediate ejection the first in a regular season game in Curry’s career "My frustration boiled over did something stupid deserved to get kicked out and that’s what happened" Curry said But Curry denied trying to hit official Scott Wall with the throw "If I tried to throw it at him and hit him I’ve got a pretty good aim" Curry said adding he "would have been able to execute that" With Curry headed out Durant also was arguing and crew chief Brian Forte sent him to the locker room As Durant was walking out along the sidelines the Memphis fans taunted him and screen shots of the broadcast showed him with an extended finger although some thought it was an extended ring finger "That’s part of the game It’s fun" Durant said of the crowd reaction "They’re heckling us calling us names. It’s nothing personal or nothing serious" A major portion of the Warriors anemic shooting came in the third quarter when the Golden State made onlysix of 22 shots That led to 15 straight Memphis points and a 19-point Grizzlies lead in the latter stages of the third Memphis outscored the Warriors 32-20 in the frame holding an 88-71 lead entering the fourth "If we get stops obviously you can run a lot more" Gasol said referencing Memphis’ desire to play with a faster pace this year "It starts defensively We have to get stops and we have to be able to run and get them scrambling" Cavs beaten Nikola Vucevic scored 23 points and the Orlando Magic snapped a 17-game losing streak against the Cleveland Cavaliers routing the defending Eastern Conference champions 114-93 on Saturday night Orlando’s first win over Cleveland since 23 November 2012 came in convincing fashion The Magic never trailed and built a 21-point lead late in the first quarter Orlando led 36-18 after the first hitting 14 of 24 from the field The Magic who made 14 of 35 3-pointers took their biggest lead 106-69 midway through the fourth quarter when both teams cleared their benches LeBron James scored 14 points in the first quarter and finished with 22 as the Cavaliers lost for the first time in three games Milwaukee Bucks edge pastTrail Blazers Elsewhere Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 17 of his career-high 44 points in the fourth quarter and he gave Milwaukee the lead for good on a breakaway dunk with 11 seconds left With Portland leading 110-109 the Trail Blazers lost the ball and Antetokounmpo’s thunderous dunk put the Bucks ahead After a timeout Damian Lillard found Jusef Nurkic running down the lane but Antetokounmpo blocked his shot at the basket sending the 7-foot center crashing to the floor Khris Middleton was fouled and made both free throws to close the scoring Lillard scored 16 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter CJ McCollum also had 26 Antetokounmpo made 17 of 23 shots and had eight rebounds and four assists Harden inspires Rockets to victory In Houston James Harden scored 29 points and Houston beat Dallas in their home opener Playing without point guard Chris Paul who is week-to-week with a left knee injury Harden frequently bulldozed his way into the paint for layups while also keeping hot from beyond the arc Harden made six of 13 3-pointers and added seven assists in 29 minutes Houston improved to 3-0 for the first time since the 2014-15 season when it started 6-0 Dallas fell to 0-3 for the first time since the 2011-12 season which followed their NBA title run in 2010-11 Pistons overhaul21-point deficit to win Tobias Harris scored 22 of his 31 points in the second half and Detroit erased a 21-point deficit to beat New York Harris was one of the many Pistons who had little going to start the Pistons’ second game in two nights but they turned it around after half-time to spoil the Knicks’ home opener Kristaps Porzingis scored 33 points but New York fell to 0-2 after losing to former Knicks star Carmelo Anthony and Oklahoma City in its opener Andre Drummond had 21 points and 12 rebounds for the Pistons Written by Utkarsh Anand | New Delhi | Published: March 28 2012 2:12 am Related News Days after it issued completion certificates for 30 out of the 34 towers in the Commonwealth Games Village complexand handed out the conveyance deed to developer Emaar MGF after receiving Rs 19 crore as duesthe Delhi Development Authority (DDA) made yet another attempt before the Delhi High Court on Tuesday to procure a nod for auctioning 110 flats in the complexwhich is mired in a controversy over excess construction Refusing to pass any immediate order on DDAs pleaJustice Hima Kohli asked it to wait at least till the next date of hearingwhen the court will decide whether DDA should be allowed to issue public advertisements or call for bids The courtwhich had on March 19 halted DDAs plan to test the market, Both Air India and Indian Airlines had their finest management set-up in the ?the moot point is whether the board?
